Spring Hill College Earth Day Celebration April 22

Fri, 04/18/2008 (All day)

Mobile – Spring Hill College is going green. All Spring Hill College students, faculty, staff and alumni are invited to attend an Earth Day celebration located on the Spring Hill campus. The event will take place in the Rydex Commons on April 22 beginning at 3 p.m. Earth Day festivities will include fun, food, entertainment, games, prizes and various exhibits.

Spring Hill’s 2008-2009 theme is “Renewing the Face of the Earth,” and the Spring Hill College Earth Day committee is eager to jump-start the campaign with this celebration.  Increasing environmental awareness on campus will encourage students to get involved and educate themselves by taking part in pre-Earth Day festivities. The Earth Day celebration will highlight ways to get involved in environmental efforts on campus, as well as other general tips and ideas. Giveaways include a new bike, reusable shopping bags and more. Water bottles will be distributed for $1. Entertainment will be provided by a local band made up of Spring Hill College students. Food will be “green friendly” as well as healthy and provided by Aramark Food Services. 

Environmental organizations, students, faculty and staff are working hard in their efforts to make this event, educational, fun and entertaining. Travis Brown, a freshman at Spring Hill, says, “Earth Day is a great way to inform people of our needs, express concern and take positive steps toward reaching our goal for a more carefully managed environment.” Support Spring Hill’s efforts in increasing environmental awareness and learn how you can improve in your environmental practices.
